School of Business

Leicester Masterclass

The Leicester Masterclass forms a key part of the School’s calendar. Through a selection of lectures and dedicated workshops you will be exposed to innovative ideas that build your knowledge of key concepts, alongside building your confidence, study skills and career prospects.  In addition to this this you will have the opportunity to meet tutors and network with fellow students, and alumni from across the globe.

The Leicester Masterclass 2024 is themed around business sustainability.  As the World Meteorological Office (WMO) report that 2023 was the warmest year on record, with global average near-surface temperatures of 1,45 degrees C above the pre-industrial baseline, we focus our Masterclass 2024 on sustainability.

Throughout the week we will explore climate science to help us to better frame the actions we can take.  We will then explore both individual and organisational contributions to global warming.  Assessing carbon footprints and exploring the climate damaging behaviours of different sectors, we will work collectively towards the creation of action plans.

As part of the Masterclass, you will be have the opportunity to demonstrate your commitment to sustainability by applying for your personal carbon literacy accreditation.  Awarded by the Carbon Trust, this accreditation encourages you to make individual and organisational commitments to climate positive behaviour, and is a transferable award.


A full Leicester Masterclass timetable will be released shortly.
